“She was one of my favorite people, one of the best comics in history, we called her a friend, and we love Joan Rivers.”
Among the trademark moments in Joan’s highlight reel:
Cohen asked Rivers, “What was the best sex you've had in Hollywood?” to which she responded, “Abraham Lincoln!”

At one point Andy told the comedy icon, “What can I say: I love you, I love you, I love you.”

The somber montage ended with Joan explaining the importance of comedy in the world.
“Life is so difficult; it’s so hard,” she said. “If we don’t laugh at anything, then we’re out of our minds.”
